Item description for The Well- Lived Life by Dominique Browning...

Few magazines can lay claim to a century of history or to having published work by so many extraordinary and distinguished photographers and writers as House & Garden. Now, straight from the pages of this well-loved periodical, The Well-Lived Life presents a lavish chronicle of a country and a culture coming into its own, documenting America's continuing education in matters of house, home and garden over the course of the twentieth century. Selecting high points from the magazine, this book surveys the growing confidence and imagination reflected in American interiors and entertaining over the last century - the dinners, picnics and parties of a country dedicated to welcoming others - and the changing definition of home. It also illuminates the joys - sedentary or sporting - Americans have always found in the out-of-doors. The Well-Lived Life surveys the landscape of our lawns and gardens, from rigid formality to wild, blowsy beauty, and takes a close look at blooms and their ability to charm, seduce, amaze and inspire. It also travels to the places we build to get away from it all - the cabins, cottages and summer palaces where we shed the formality and stress of everyday life. Above all, this volume illustrates the abiding affection we have for how and where we make our lives. Featuring such legendary photographers as Irving Penn, Horst P. Horst, John Rawlings, Andre Kertesz, Lord Snowdon, Alfred Eisenstaedt, Ezra Stoller and George Hoyningen-Huene.

Reviews - What do customers think about The Well- Lived Life?

the well lived life   Jul 31, 2008
i was a big fan of the House and Garden magazine so i was disappointed by this book. More inspirational shots, ie. flowers, people, etc... than actual homes. the book is lovely but thought it would be more of a shelter book than "artsy" type format.
